Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ341

In the figure below, not drawn to scale, the area of the square is twice that of the rectangle. What is the perimeter of the rectangle?

Solution:

The area of the square is 8 × 8 = 64 cm2

The area of the square is twice that of the rectangle

The area of the rectangle = 64 ÷ 2 = 32cm2

The length of rectangle = 32 ÷ 2 = 16 cm

The perimeter of the rectangle is 2 × 16 + 2 × 2 = 36 cm

Alternative Solution:

Divided the square to 2cm length rectangles

The area of the square is twice the area of the rectangle

The yellow portion is equal to the area of the rectangle
